Eisner Award-nominated writer/artist Jo lle Jones continues her landmark series as Selina Kyle reconnects with her criminal roots! Lex Luthor's "Year of the Villain" gift to Catwoman is revealed, and while she wants to remain on the side of good, some habits are too hard to break, and some treasures too tempting. Selina finally has the key to everything Raina Creel wants-and Catwoman is going to get it first. Which all sounds dandy in theory, but Creel has come too far and put up with too much humiliation from Catwoman to let her win again. Will Catwoman come out the other side as a hero...or villain? Collects Catwoman #16-21.

    Gonna be honest, issue 16 was a bit confusing. Went back and forth quite a bit and the art wasn't consistent at all. We get to see Selina fighting Creel, with Selina losing in the end. I do like the resurrection process and the dead coming back to life, hopefully, others find it interesting!
    In issue 17, we get many different outfit changes and a very confusing decision on Selina's behalf, to continue to be a hero or villain. Issue 18 did pick up quite a bit, loved that Jones introduced Zatanna back on the scene. Issue 19 is all about zombies with the story progressing no further than it did before. Issue 20 is not really what I was expecting, this is more of a filler issue. I like how Selina has been wearing many different outfits from her different eras. They could've ended the arc with 20, in my opinion.

    Issue 21, we finally get an ending to the Creel story with Selina making reparations to her relationships with Carlos and Aunt Linda. Selina running away with her sister who can now finally talk, a perfect score. However, the art was decent for the most part, would've been better with Jones' style, for that it lost a few points.

    Overall, art was decent and story was a bit slower than other books. Jones should've stuck to artwork but nonetheless, she tried her best. Jones never did clearly state Selina's mission and what Creel was after making a great idea turn into a dissapointment!
